Despite loving more pricey gear, many of us love cheap gear. Let's face it - we love a good bargain and a great deal. Some on TB just don't understand why we love these instruments. So let's show those basses that you got a great deal on, rescued, or just plain love for under $400 - used or new! Tribute to the cheapies! Here's my $190 ($215 with the shipping) love - my '87 Yamaha RBX-5. Aside from the oxidizing gold hardware, it's in nice condition. Beautiful transparent red over ash body. I took this to the beach with my girlfriend and her family a few weeks ago. Played through a Micro Cube Battery amp, and I got all sorts of compliments (both on my playing and on my sound).
